to me. >> and governor, how have nevada politics george w. bush won the state twice. now president obama has won state twice. we've also seen huge shift in the latino demographics going from 20% in 2000 to 27% in 2010. have the politics there really shifted? >> it shifted a lot over the years. president clinton, of course, won the state also. perhaps that's why he wrote the forward to my book. because i ran that campaign, but nevada has historically been one that has a combination of a democratic and republican leadership in various offices. the demographics in las vegas have changed dramatically. we have many more hispanics moving into the community. much more democratic registration. that is a reason i think president obama has carried nevada the last two elections as opposed to previously when george w. bush did. >> so do you see nevada in the future becoming more and more blue, going more and more blue with the explosion of hispanics and latinos that will be there? or do you think it's going to be a swing state and go back and forth? >> i think we're always going to be in play. i thi
% in the run-off, he's in real trouble. and as for elizabeth colbert bush, he is impressed with the race she is running. he thinks she has a tough up-hill battle but she's been super focused on jobs. has been laying low and really doing a great job. their this is a district south carolina win, that mitt romney won by 18 percentage points. so it will be a tough role for her. >> i will say i think having a woman against him is probably a plus. >> i think you're right. >> i am wondering -- >> there is another thing we haven't acknowledged, which is that perhaps it makes it easier. the rt sof scandal is bluntd a bit by the fact that he married the mistress. it sort of makes that whole thing a little more palatable. >> i found my true love. >> i'm wondering as i thought back about some of these in the past, brad pitt, for example, and angelina jolie, you mentioned -- >> the other connection i made right away. >> tom hanks married rita wilson. and the best of this, the best at this was of course, prince charles and camilla. they managed to change the p.r. around this story so well that the p.r. fi
'm paraphrasing, but that basically what he said. that the commitment that george w. bush got before he was president flying by helicopter by ariel sharon. that's the size of israel and how close it is to its neighbors that netanyahu wanted to hear. >> andrea, chuck todd brought up two-state solution, of course, today. any chance that obama can nudge netanyahu toward that or is the threat from iran right now too much to even go there? >> they are talking about it but i think it will be in john kerry's lap and he will be here saturday night. after going to jordan with the president we will double back to jerusalem, have dinner with netanyahu, have dinner with a couple of advisers on both sides, and they will try to move this along. it is a big stretch. my colleague, veteran journalist here, martin fletcher of nbc, says it is hard for them to come up with a new configuration. you have ynetanyahu out of a ne election. you have palestinian authority. so how you have negotiations and what the formula would be and israel surrounded byis lathe fund meantlism and war in syria, it just really is
. to try to match even though it is a big leap, the kind of connection that george bush had on security concerns and certainly bill clinton had as a beloved figure in israel. that is what he had not done until now. he had been here as a candidate in 2008. i was covering him there then. he had not reached out to israel's people in a personal way. and i think that's what he tried to accomplish. he did it by talking about the struggles of the palestinians and the israel business the civil rights struggle, with the fact that you israelis have fought for this land. you fought to overcome your struggles just as my children in another generation would not have had equal rights. so he really tried to make it a personal appeal. and that i think had some resonance in talking to the host of the "meet the press" here in israel and very widely known anchor. and she said the follow-up is the main concern. but that it was a very different kind of speech and very appealing to the people there in the room. >> and making that personal appeal something the president does very well. thanks again and safe t
would say that is christie. representing the party, kind of like the george bush appeal. i say real thing more from here than above the neck. but rand paul is the leader of the republican party, or at least the leader of the race for 2016. >> he is one of them. >> he won the krp pac straw poll. and he has this appeal to under 40s that none of the others can match at this point. i think he is interesting as the most, the best friend that the restaurant industry in america could possibly have. he is pro pathway. again -- >> are you about rand? >> pro pathway to citizenship. anti-being droend in cafes and pro deciding whether or not they want to have black people go into the restaurants. there. >> you can forgive my confusion when you said restaurant industry. i thought you were talking about chris christie. >> no, no, rand paul. >> i don't know about rand paul as the leader for 2016. he has gotten a lot of energy. i has a lot of thing, he won the cpac. i think he is a better politician than his dad is. i think he has a broader reach in terms of actually getting the nomination in 2016.
the bush years when democrats blocked a landful of very conservative judicial nominees. in some respects, this might be payback. what could obama do? he can try another couple of judicial nominations. the bottom line is he needs to clear these judicial nominations with at least a handful of republicans. otherwise if they're too liberal, they will get filibustered. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >>> up next, a huge week ahead for gay rights as the supremes take up two gay marriage cases. people have been camping out in the rain and sleet just to get inside. but pete williams always has the inside scoop. he will get us up to speed as "the cycle" rolls on. try e-mail marketing from constantcontact. it's the fastest, easiest way to create great-looking custom e-mails that bring customers through your door. sign up for your free trial today at constantcontact.com/try. otherworldly things. but there are some things i've never seen before. this ge jet engine can understand 5,000 data samples per second. which is good for business. because planes use less fuel, spend less time on the grou
